of this is starting to become some news today. mitt romney in the last couple of days has been talking about former navy s.e.a.l. glen doherty who was killed in -- >> got a little emotional. >> that's right. he got a little emotional yesterday in iowa. he told the story last night, told it again this afternoon, glen doherty died in that consulate attack in benghazi last month. i have to tell you that the mother of that navy s.e.a.l. has asked the romney campaign to stop telling that story. she said in an interview with whdh tv in boston, she doesn't touch romney and she shouldn't make her son's death part of his political agenda. i reached out to andrea saul with the romney campaign and she said that they respect the wishes of mrs. doherty and the campaign confirms to cnn he will no longer be telling that story. so it is interesting to see, you know, mitt romney sort of making some adjustments to his campaign speeches. some of them going over well, some not going over so well, brooke. >> so they will be respecting the mother's wishes to please stop telling the story about her fallen son. jim acosta
and many other viewers out there may be confused on where he stands on this issue. mitt romney, if you listen carefully to what he said, he talks about legislation. well, that's very different as you and i know, brooke, from supporting nominees to the supreme court who would outlaw abortion, who would overturn roe v. wade. that's very different than supporting legislation that would try to do that in congress. and so i think that might be the distinction there that mitt romney is going for. as you mentioned, a few moments ago, he has evolved on this issue over the years and romney has not shied away from that. he admitted back in 2004 that when he was governor of massachusetts that he had had a conversion on this issue. it was when he was basically told about what happened to embryos during stem cell research, that is when he says he had an epiphany on the issue of life and from then on forward he has been pretty staunchly anti-abortion. >> so, let me jump in, because you any, you say distinction, we could call it knnuance, that th nuance on this abortion issue is cropping up as the pr
